The Dutch one-man band Conspiracy returns with IRREMEDIABLE, the project’s third offering. This endeavor continues to dabble in the darkness with a vehement black metal style anchoring the attack (“The Invocation of Hecate”, “Armageddon Broke”), allowing sole member Al Hazard (ex-Melechesh) to venture into more symphonic sounds throughout the duration of the album, yielding an ominous vibe reminiscent of old Cradle of Filth. Chock full of odd-placed nuances such as an eerie organ that seem at times a bit over the top to be taken with heed (“Carpathian Sunset”, “Pentagram”), Conspiracy’s latest collection contains a smattering of vitriolic viciousness (“A Dream of Fear”) yet exhibits the experimental wares to be able to veer off into a likely ode to King Diamond (“Irremediable”) giving the release an unorthodox quality and a few unexpected twists worth your attention.
